I see I've already been quoted!

But, to be brief, this jam was not played at any other show; and the jam names were always given by the fans. (The band themselves refused to use the "Mind Left Body" name on early vault releases.)
Usually it was a prety obvious theme name, but in the old tape-trading days people would often tack any old random name on - "Heaven Help Jam", "Slipknot Jam" - and the major themes like Tighten Up & Feelin' Groovy & Mind Left Body were constantly confused by people, for some reason.

But anyway - this is a good thread on the Beautiful Jam, and how many listeners have mistaken it for a Tighten Up jam -
